MOWBRAY faces a big run chase on the second day of its final round NTCA first-grade clash against ladder leader Westbury at Shaws Oval tomorrow.
The Shamrocks piled on the runs last week, finishing the day at 8-343, on the back of a great captain's knock of 189 by Dane Anderson.
Westbury has Michael Lukic on 12 not out and Richard Howe 7, ready to resume if it decides to bat on.
Anderson made the Eagles pay for a couple of dropped catches last week.
"I think our bowlers bowled all right but Dane was pretty aggressive in his batting and challenged our bowlers and had a bit of luck with us dropping a few chances - credit to him," Mowbray acting-captain Liam Reynolds said.
Alastair Biffin comes into the Eagles' line-up for day 2 and Reynolds was unsure whether the Shamrocks would bat on at the start of play.
"We need to get as much out of our batting effort as we can and we will focus on trying to get some early partnerships going at the top of the order," he said.
"We need to set ourselves up to get some time in the middle for all our batsmen.
"The wicket should be fine - it had a bit of a green tinge last week but was hard nice and hard so hopefully it will be OK to bat on this week."
RIVERSIDE will be looking for quick wickets when it resumes against George Town at Crothers Oval.
The Blues made 165 batting first last week and had the home side 5-112 at stumps, still needing another 54 runs to take first innings points, with Daniel Newton not out 44 and Zac Barber yet to score.
"It was a pretty even day last week," Riverside acting-captain Tom Hay said.
"We wanted to try and bat the whole day but that didn't happen due to a traditional George Town wicket.
"We were happy with the way we bowled and fielded at the end of the day in that last session."
Hay said the match was evenly poised and would be won or lost in the first hour of play tomorrow.
"It's important we're on right from the start, get some early wickets and try to end our season on a bit of a high.
SOUTH LAUNCESTON will resume at 4-122, in its match against Launceston at NTCA No.2 Ground.
The Knights dismissed the Lions for 103 last Saturday with Kyle Bowie the standout with the ball picking up 5-20, off 20 overs, with 10 maidens.
Souty leads by 19 runs with six wickets in hand, with wicketkeeper Nathan Philip 49 not out and Cody Weedon on eight.
Launceston captain Rowan Smith said his side's batting performance last week was disappointing.
"It was a repeat of previous games where we failed to make an impact with the bat in the first innings," he said.
"We're going to have to try to bowl them out pretty quickly and see where the game takes us but we're going to have to bat a lot better in the second innings."
Smith said his bowlers were wayward early but the spinners dragged it back in the last hour of play, picking up a couple of wickets.
"Their run rate was pretty high to start with so we need to adjust our line and length a bit quicker.
"We need quick wickets to put some pressure back on them and set the game up depending on what they decide to do."
